Smoke production is one of the top complaints surrounding backyard burning in general. However, the patented design of our High-Temp Incinerators already reduces the amount of smoke produced through burning and makes our products a great option for those trying to be considerate of the environment.

Looking to reduce your incinerator’s smoke production even further? Here are three helpful tips to improve your burning sessions!

  • Use Completely Dry Burnables

It can be tempting to rake your yard and immediately deposit all of those damp, pesky leaves or branches directly into your incinerator. However, we highly recommend drying out your yard debris before deciding to burn. By eliminating any extra water on your debris, smoke production can also be reduced.

  • Check Your Air Flow

Be considerate of how you fill your incinerator. Try to leave space for free airflow between contents by scrunching paper rather than piling in full files and by carefully stacking wood. Creating these airways allows for easy oxygen flow, which helps the flame move quickly and efficiently through your burnables.

  • Know What You’re Burning

Different types of wood can cause more smoke when burning. Hard woods such as oak, maple, and ash produce less smoke while softer woods like green pine result in more smoke. Try to monitor what you’re putting in your incinerator so you can keep an eye on smoke production!

We hope these tips can help you have a safe and efficient burning session!
